The Istanbul Agent is another wild ride for Ruben Carver. A fast-paced

Near East and South Asia Division, suspects the involvement of an
arcane, international cabal referred to only as The Board.
Sheppard’s last encounter with the group was on the heals of a near-miss
operation in Shanghai run by NCIS Special Agent Ruben Carver. A man
with a reputation for heavy-handed conflict resolution and an uncanny
survival instinct, who’d already faced The Board twice.
With intelligence leaks in the Agency compromising his operation, Sheppard
is approved to enlist the assistance of NCIS and Carver. The mission
is to fly in, find the traitor, put the grabs on him and devise an
extraction, without involving in-country CIA or military support.
A simple plan complicated by The Board’s own interest in retaining the
scientist’s services, along with his life’s work: A bacterial agent,
once weaponized, that is a potential planet killer.
